My little manga break is over. I’d say it was a fairly big success because I came out thinking that maybe manga is not so bad after all, unlike my stint with visual novels. I’ll still be checking out some of the other manga recommended to me and possibly review them. I’m slowly making my through 7 Seeds and enjoying it quite a bit, and I believe Shinmaru is continuing his Jojo’s manga trawl. However it will be at a much slower pace and won’t be the main focus anymore. Besides, I need to get back to these yearly posts because I want to round off last decade before the 2010′s finish.
So as I did with 2002 and 2001, I’m looking for recommendations for what anime to watch from 2003. Wikipedia’s list is probably the easiest to browse. Same rules apply as last time. Don’t recommend anything too long (so no…errr, Zatch Bell, since that seems to be the only 60+ episode anime from that year). Don’t recommend any sequels (besides, I’ve already rewatched Fumoffu). Don’t go for the stupidly obvious (so no Full Metal Alchemist). Try to recommend stuff that you think I will actually like and haven’t already seen, but don’t worry about those points too much. When in doubt, just recommend anyway because it’s always interesting seeing what people still hold up as being good from that year.
